There was resistance

I have spent years studying the Holocaust (Shoah) and even in the midst of such horrendous research I am often struck by the resistance and heroism of Jews and righteous Gentiles. We all know the horrible pictures of bull dozed corpses and innocents by the millions being tortured and murdered but there were other countless moments when in myriad ways people resisted. Most of the world was silent but others even risking life never gave their spirits and souls to the monsters. I had the great privilege to study with Viktor Frankl. They took his family ,his country,his profession but they never stole his heart and soul.As we remember the horrors let us also memorialize the courage and commitments that still live after the monsters have gone.
